Matthew McConaughey Suggests Woody Harrelson Could Be His Half-Brother

Could Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson be secret brothers? The A-list actors, who have been close friends for years, are currently investigating the possibility of a familial connection after a chance encounter with McConaughey’s mother.

The two stars are set to collaborate on a television project for Apple TV, which led McConaughey to reflect on the nature of his relationship with Harrelson. “You know, where I start and where he ends, and where he starts and I end, has always been like a murky line,” he said.

During a conversation with his mother, McConaughey discovered that there is a chance that Harrelson is actually his brother. “My mom is there, and she says, ‘Woody, I knew your dad.’ Everyone was aware of the ellipses that my mom left after ‘knew.’ It was a loaded K-N-E-W”.

McConaughey and Harrelson delved into their family histories to investigate the potential connection. “We went on to unpack what this ‘knew’ meant and did some math and found out that [Harrelson’s] dad was on furlough at the same time that my mom and dad were in their second divorce.

Then there’s possible receipts and places out in west Texas where there might have been a gathering, or a meeting, or a ‘knew’ moment”. Despite this revelation, the two actors have yet to take a DNA test to confirm their familial link.

“Look, it’s a little easier for Woody to say, ‘Come on, let’s do [DNA tests],’ because what’s the skin in it for him?” said McConaughey. “It’s a little harder for me because he’s asking me to take a chance to go, ‘Wait a minute, you’re trying to tell me my dad may not be my dad after 53 years of believing that?’ I got a little more skin in the game”.

The potential connection between the two actors has only strengthened their already close bond. “My kids call him Uncle Woody. His kids call me Uncle Matthew. And you see pictures of us and my family thinks a lot of pictures of him are me.

His family thinks a lot of pictures of me are him,” said McConaughey. Despite their decision not to take a DNA test just yet, the actors’ investigation into their family histories continues. The potential brotherhood between Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson is a fascinating topic for fans of both actors, and it remains to be seen whether a DNA test will be taken to confirm their familial link.
